Just bought a new Apple Airport Extreme (my first Apple product and not happy) and connected an external Hard drive to it via USB but I can't get my PC to recognize it.  I can see it when I log into the extreme under utilities but that is it.  I tried 3 different hard drives, 2 are in FAT32 and the larger one is NTFS.  I followed Apple's instructions under disk sharing and still nothing. 

  I would greatly appreciate any advice to get this working.

Windows 7
